     Pennsylvania had the second highest number of CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) camps (113). Pennsylvania received so many camps because Governor Gifford Pinchot already had a plan in place. Each camp had about 200 men. The average camp had about 24 buildings, including kitchen, mess hall, barracks and quarters for the officers. Many young men came to the camps hungry and poorly clothed. They were issued uniforms and given three meals a day. Most young men gained about 40 pounds while in the CCC. The men earned $30 a month, most of which was sent home to their families. Run by the U.S. Army, a typical day began at 6:00 AM with breakfast at 6:30 AM. At 7:15 AM trucks were loaded with tools and men for the day. "Local experienced men" usually served as foremen for the work. Lunch was usually half an hour. At 4:00 PM the trucks headed back to camp for the flag lowering ceremony, inspection and announcements. After dinner, the men had free time until lights out at 10:00 PM. The CCC fought forest fires, planted trees, built roads, buildings, picnic areas, swimming areas, campgrounds and created many State Parks. The CCC transformed the forests and natural areas of Pennsylvania and transformed all of the young men who were involved. Although it was a dark time for the economy and the many unemployed people, a conservation program like the CCC greatly enhanced the Pennsylvania Bureau of State Parks. The outbreak of World War II caused the ending of the CCC on June 30, 1942.
